Frank narrowly escaped eviction against Kara in Big Brother 14 Episode 4, so of course shortly thereafter he became the new HOH.
Ashley says she got rid of Kara because Kara was just going to fly under the radar, which she doesn’t like because that’s her strategy. A dull strategy, but a safe one.
Even Britney has accepted the fact that her player Willie is a sinking ship and needs to go.
Not having much of a team any more nor an alliance with Boogie, Dan sends Danielle to partner with Janelle. She’d rather have a showmance with Shane.
Ian wants to have a slop date with Ashley. She likes nerdy guys, which in the Big Brother house gives her one option. This is as odd a couple as they come, but the date seems to go fine.
The coaches have to compete on balance beams while wearing ridiculous clothes that are apparently supposed to be 90s hip hop (was there hip hop then?). They have to transfer all their cash one brick at a time from one side to the other. Britney, the only one who would actually want to get rid of one of her players, takes a big early lead, but she drops some of her cash, which is instant elimination. Dan has no interest in winning because he wants to be seen as the weak coach (tough sell), which makes it a competition between Boogie and Janelle. Boogie wins by a couple stacks. Or does he? He jumps off, then he hits the button. Disqualified. Janelle wins by default, which she takes to mean the comp queen is back in the house.
After winning, Janelle declines to trade one of her players. Instead, she opts to keep Ashley safe. Willie, Jojo, Shane, and Ian are have nots, the latter two for a second week in a row. In addition to slop, they get pork rinds and pudding.
Willie wants to round up his old team, but Britney vetoes it. Shane refuses to talk to him, but Jojo has to be told no. Britney rides Willie, who in turn goes upstairs to confront the people in the HOH room to tell them he messed it up so don’t take it out on others. I’m still not sure what he did to end up in this position, but Willie’s quickly becoming the leper of the house.
He assumes he’s out anyway, and not only does everybody hate him, but now not a soul will talk to him, which in such a confined environment where all there is to do is talk could get problematic real quick. So if he’s going down, he’s going down swinging. Joe says something to him in passing, which leads to shouting and a headbutt. Violence is a sure way to get kicked off a reality show, and so officially ends Willie’s game. Hopefully this is the last Hantz family member CBS has in store for us.
Britney and her players think he should have stuck around to continue to be walked on. Now they’re screwed because it would seem the target that was previously on Willie shifts to Jojo and Shane, which ironically enough is exactly what they were trying to avoid by saying they can’t talk to him any more.
